Thermo Fisher Scientific is allocating $700,000 a year to a new scholarship program providing financial assistance to students pursuing an undergraduate degree in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) at one of five prestigious academic institutions.

Three of the institutions are in the US – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California, Berkeley – while the other two are Imperial College London in the UK and Fudan University in Shanghai, China. The program will initially support a total of 44 students, but Thermo Fisher expects the program to grow to support 164 students in four years.

'Thermo Fisher is dedicated to instilling a passion for STEM education in students who may one day be our employees, or our customers,' said Marc Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. 'By making education more accessible for some of the brightest young minds, we hope to have a positive impact on industries that are using science to improve healthcare, the environment and public safety.'

Students interested in learning more about the Thermo Fisher Scientific STEM Scholarship should contact the respective institution’s financial aid office.
